More than 600,000 Mr. Coffee single cup brewers are being recalled because of a potential burn hazard. The units are imported by Jarden Consumer Solutions.
The company, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, said Thursday that they are recalling 520,000 units in the U.S. and 80,700 in Canada.
A build-up of steam in the water can force the brewing chamber open and expel hot coffee grounds and water.
The makers bear model numbers, printed on the bottom of the brewer, starting with the letters BVMC-KG. Consumers should stop using the brewers and contact Jarden at (800) 993-8609 or at www.mrcoffeerecall.com.
